Platform HPC Workgroup Manager: Simplified Management of High-Performance Computing Clusters
As any IT manager knows, cost and complexity often go hand in hand. There are few software environments more complex then modern high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, so dealing with the problem of complexity in cluster management is central to containing cost.
Linux®-based commodity clusters have come to dominate supercomputing, and are making serious in-roads in corporate and academic settings as well. This is due in part to their superior performance, cost-effectiveness and flexibility.
